Proud to partner with Alzheimer’s Society

As a family run, outdoor brand, we are delighted to be the Official Sponsor for Alzheimer’s Society’s flagship fundraising event - Memory Walk. Memory Walk is the 4th biggest mass participation event in the UK.The series of sponsored walks in September and October, are for all ages and abilities to unite together to raise money to defeat dementia. Over 100,000 people took part in 2018 across 38 walks. We want to help grow the event this year to 120,000 people across 50 walks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Memory Walk is inclusive and accessible. Most walks are less than 10km in length but for those who want a challenge, the Memory Walk Plus in select locations would be perfect!

It has become the UK’s biggest killer but we are still unable to prevent, cure or even slow this terrible disease down - we must take action now.Alzheimer’s Society is the UK’s leading dementia charity. They work tirelessly to find new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for dementia. They provide expert information, training and support services to all who need our help and are working towards creating a more dementia-friendly society so more people can live well with dementia.
